involved is different from a private enterprise. the ability for fraud to creep into government programs financed by taxes is slightly higher than a private enterprise we've got people watching shareholders of their own personal money at risk. so i think it's endemic in government that there's a certain amount of problems in this area. in medicare that is probably the order of $60 billion per year in wasteful and fraudulent payments, which is a huge number. in part because the medicare program is ebullient claims here for medical services. the ability to track this and figure out which ones are right and wrong is limited at the federal level. there's a certain things things that go on a government that are very difficult to get all the way out. the caller is absolutely right that should be a top, top priority. .. >> caller: specifically i should have addressed the $58 million a year that we pay for foreign aid. that $50 billion would pay out each year secured or fire protection so that our citizens there, people who key figure with them -- >> host: you agree, jim? is is a drop i
. we just had an -- we have board of elections. i'm going to talk -- federal government wants to do one thing in a can help us. send us more money to buy new machines. because our machines are old. our maintenance contracts are wearing out. this is all done at the local level. they got us addicted to these new expensive machines and our machines are getting old and there's no federal dollars to replace them. and then, oh, by the way, budgets are being cut. it's going from the federal to the state to the local. and so we had -- we just had an announcement where the county that was cnn was at, said it could be the most important county in ohio, that their board just laid off a third of their work pours. and now they may be able to come back and replace those folks with temporary workers down the road, but it's talent and training and all of those things that we continue to go on the cheap. we can't run a world-class election system on the cheap. it's just not possible. you can't ask a system to do more and more and more and more, have fewer resources, older equipment and less trained peop
emerging economy. we asked about the report the government makes for business and enterprise. it is fair to say that his answer has captured the imagination of all political parties that will respond formally in the spring. so here's what we will do now. first, government spending should be alone with the business community. we will provide new money to support the partnerships. from april 2015, the governmental elites one of the funding and get people back to work. the gross funds are having businesses get back into the game. we are going to support businesses and technologies where britain has a clear technology advantage. we will extend our global lead in aerospace and support the supply chain for advanced infection. we've also support british companies to new emerging markets in asia and africa and the americas. and increasing the funding for the uk by over 25% a year. so they can help more firms build the capacity of overseas british chambers and maintain our country's position as the number one destination in europe for foreign investment. we are launching a new 1.5 billion pounds
-- the fcc, the agency of government created by congress to protect the public's rightful ownership of the airwaves -- is reportedly asking the other four commissioners to suspend the rule preventing a company from owning a newspaper and radio and tv stations in the same big city. thus he would give the massive media companies free rein to devour more of the competition. the chairman is julius genachowski, appointed to the job by president barack obama. now, the fcc tried to pull this same stunt under a republica chairman back in the second term of george w. bush, but at hearings held around the country an angry public fought back. >> we told you a year ago when you came to seattle that media consolidation is a patently bad idea. no "ifs," "ands," or "buts" about it. so with all due respect i ask you, what part of that didn't you understand? >> i'm a republican and i'm a capitalist, but some areas of our private sector must be regulated. freedom of information is too important, we must be oactive in protecting that fundamental freedom. >> if the fcc is here wanting to know if chicag

. they understand this thing they have a great economy growing rapidly is fragile and requires government to facilitate rather than later uncertainty. that is almost like a test tube of forcing. we had a time in which we had a huge amount of uncertainty. comes from -- some comes from government action. we had an aggressive regulatory agenda. we have not made a certain investments we have made. you add that up and you have a period in which businesses are operating under huge weight. creates the conditions under which businesses can operate in intellectual freedom. among the things government can do is create the conditions under which cost [no audio] to allow businesses to innovate. >> one of the statistics i looked at how to do with reducing regulatory barriers and i thought this was amazing. 20 employees spent 36% more to comply with regulations and that goes to the heart of what we consider to be the innovation story in this country. the small startup and that is what we're looking for as we look for the next big economic success story are the start-ups. the serbs that may have been ar

of the republican party is a party that understands that limited government, limited government and free markets is not enough. that we have to have a message to say, how does that work for you? and that's why we put together specific policies that did in fact and free market policies that did in fact address lower and middle income americans. if we don't do that and go out and say, here's how -- for example, barack obama sort of stepped on it when he said you didn't build that. mitt romney went out and legitimately criticized for him but went out with a bunch of small business people and not so small business people. we could have gone out there with the people who work for the small business person. the person who knows the owner of that business and says we built this together. here's how this helps -- here's what these policies help me. and i don't think we did that -- i know we didn't do that. we didn't even try to do that. that's what we tried to do in our race. and i'm certainly going to be out there and have been out there already. i wrote an op-ed after the election for "usa today", it'

reform debate, which may be apocryphal, "keep government hands off my medicare." the big tea party uprising was in large part a reaction to the idea, quote/unquote, of socialized medicine. it was the affordable care act, and the government, quote, takeover of health care, that fanned the flames of the post-obama tea party protest. but, of course, most of the actual republicans who were actually elected back then were elected because they ran ads like this. >> congressman brad ellsworth said he would protect our seniors. but when he got to washington, congressman ellsworth voted for the largest cuts in medicare history, over $500 billion. robin carnahan supports $500 billion in medicare cuts, hurting seniors most. rand paul doesn't support higher medicare deductibles for seniors. conway distracts with negative ads to hide his support for obama care, which cuts medicare by $500 billion. >> that was 2010. fast forward to this year's election and the same principle carries through. each side tried to convince voters that the other guy wanted to take the hatchet to medicare. >> the bigg

in the way of their total control. we live in their society. one governed by privatized moxcy. my claims are a little exaggerated. if you are reading between the lines, you can see the outline of this auto dmatonic takeover. the back and forth fiscal cliff on capitol hill has sounded more like a washington stage production of war of the world's. the myan calendar may have been correct after all. right on time, congressional republicans are crafting a doomsday scenario for the fiscal cliff. it would allow a vote on extending only the bush middle class tax cuts and nothing elseings, effectively slamming the ball into the president's court for a new year's showdown on the debt ceiling. no compromise on extending unemployment or altering the tax code for those loopholes or raising fed reral revenues. politicians are allowed to thrive off of our democratic life blood. what is missing in light of this january 1st manufactured deadline? any talk of the very real physical foibles in our country. we have chosen to ignore the ways policies have created a governor for and by the entity. when republ
